Michele Giovanni Cesari (born May 7, 1980) is an Italian actor.
Life and Career
He was born on May 7, 1980 in San Colombano al Lambro, a small village close to Milan, where he attended an art school and later earned a Bachelor's degree in Visual Design. He has always had an interest for communication, specifically figurative. At seventeen, for fun, he attended his first acting class at "Workshop of the actor", in Milan, where he completed the entire three-year training.
The passion for this job drove him to get close to Biomechanics of Mejerchol'd, attending courses in Perugia and subsequently the "commedia dell'arte", following lectures by M. Monetta. In 2002 he moved to Rome, where he continued his studies in the laboratory of G. Burinato. Not satisfied, in 2008 he moved to New York to continue his training with S. Batson at Black Nexxus and Ali Fanahrakian at the People Improv Theatre, aka P.I.T.
He started his career playing roles in television series such as Vivere, Casa Vianello and Orgoglio. Then when he moved to Rome he took part in theatrical projects: La Venexiana, Dodici Uomini Arrabbiati, Cardinal mia cara etc.
In 2006 he received the European Personality award for Best Young Actor in Campidoglio, Rome. He, then, participated in several short films and television series such as: Terapia d'urgenza, Distretto di Polizia and Sottocasa, while in cinema he played roles in Ho voglia di te, Il tunnel, Quell'estate, presented at Rome film festival in 2008, and Summertime, that won the Best Screenplay award at the 2013 First Time Fest in New York, where it was shot.
From the beginning, and even now, the motivation that drives him to do this job is the curiosity for the hidden relationship between a person's character and how one's body transposes it outside. What kind of shape "our wrapper" takes on to relate with the surrounding environment. He dislikes the representation of characters in the form of cliché, he always tries to find their uniqueness of "feeling as individual", but mostly sharing the humanity that there is behind all of us.
He enjoys drawing illustrations, taking photos and decorating t-shirts.
